The spirit breathe upon me His words

1.THE Spirit breathes upon the word,
And brings the truth to sight;
Precepts and promises afford
A sanctifying light.

2.A glory gilds the sacred page,
Majestic, like the sun :
It gives a light to every age;
It gives, but borrows none.

3.The hand that gave it still supplies
The gracious light and heat;
His truths upon the nations rise;
They rise, but never set.

4.Let everlasting thanks be Thine
For such a bright display
As makes a world of darkness
shine With beams of heavenly day.

5. My soul rejoices to pursue
The steps of Him I love,
Till glory breaks upon
my view In brighter worlds above.
